      ok, I’m new, so maybe people already do this, but I felt that, in my videos, sometimes the lyrics of the songs were a distraction. My neighbor has a huge kareoke machine in his house with about 300 cd’s. It’s perfect. music in the background, hardly noticable.

      Yes, lyrics can be distracting. Sounds like your idea of using kareoke CDs would work. Just one note of caution: There are copyright laws that apply to using someone else’s music in your own creations. Of course, just showing your videos to family and friends wouldnt be a problem, but putting them on the internet or having some other type of public showing might get you in trouble. Some music publishers provide royalty-free production music. These are CDs (typically costing around $40 each) which have music cleared for inclusion in your videos and films. I think this website has a link to some royalty-free music sources, some you might be able to get for free. I like to use music from http://www.Music2Hues.com , but you should be able to find several sources.

      BTW, “royalty free” means you don’t have to pay a royalty fee every time your video is shown. It doesn’t mean that you can get the music for free (although I have seen some “free” royalty-free music).

      Good luck!
